Marvin is the author of the Filipino food blog, Burnt Lumpia. Once upon a time, he was also the founder and co-owner of The Manila Machine, Los Angeles' first Filipino food truck.
Marvin's debut cookbook, The Adobo Road Cookbook: A Filipino Food Journey, will be released by Tuttle Publishing in early 2013.
When he isn't cooking or writing about Filipino food, Marvin is usually enjoying a beer or cocktail, and thinking about what to eat with said beer or cocktail. As such, Marvin covers bars and breweries for Serious Eats, and he is also a Bar Bites recipe contributor to Serious Eats.
